IMPLICATIONS OF 2015-2016 BUDGET REDUCTIONS IN WRPS
The Government of Alberta announced its 2015 budget on Thursday, March 26th. The Board of Trustees reviewed the impact of the budget on students and staff and identified a number of critical concerns.
In 2014-2015 the Board’s operating deficit is projected to be 2.6 million. As a result of the funding cuts WRPS is projecting a 3.87 million dollar budget deficit for 2015-2016 school year. Our 2015-2016 budget problem became more devastating when we were informed that we are unable to access our reserves without the express approval of the Minister. The Minister directed that school boards must submit balanced budgets. The Board must, therefore, cut $3.87 million dollars from the budget. To lessen the negative impact on students the Board must use its accumulated surplus to submit a balance budget.
The Provincial Budget, however, stripped school boards of their authority to manage their accumulated surplus. “As locally elected officials, we work hard to be fiscally responsible and accountable to our communities. The Board needs the flexibility to manage that surplus to protect students and classrooms from the ups and downs in the economy. Due to the imposed funding cuts and the freezing of school surpluses, students in our classrooms are now at risk of losing programs, supports and services,” stated Deanna Specht, Board Chair.

PARENT & STUDENT Access to Maplewood Connect Ed (teacher markbooks and school data base)
Several teachers at Clear Vista School have volunteered to pilot providing parents and students access to their markbooks as well as to the information the school has in its data base about students. This information includes school fees, attendance, contact information, student timetables, marks and so on.
While not every teacher is doing this, several teachers from grades 5-9 are participating. Parents and students in grades 5-9 will receive a package in the mail providing more information as well as how to log into their account to access this information. We hope to use this pilot to provide us with information that will be helpful as we look at providing access to all parents and students in the future.
GET ACCESS by "clicking" on the "Go" word on the left side of our website, under the title Connect Ed Student & Parent.
For further information, please contact Mr. Fittes.

This Friday, February 27, 2015 our school will launch a new electronic flyer / newsletter communication tool called “Peachjar.” As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer/newsletter delivery. Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools will pilot three schools to test this new electronic e-flyer system. Buck Mountain Central School, Clear Vista School, and Ecole Parkdale School.
Parents, in order to have the newsletters and e-flyers delivered to your inbox visit Peachjar.com and register. This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers/ newsletters. Your email address will never be shared or used for any other purpose.
You can also view school-approved newsletters/eflyers simply by clicking on the Peachjar button above.
This “green” initiative will provide parents with better access to information about school programs, activities, and events.
Our school will cooperate with approved community partners by posting eflyers online and distributing them electronically through our Peachjar service. The Peachjar service is free to our schools because community partners pay a small service fee to post and distribute eflyers which is typically no more than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers or advertise in local newspapers. If you are a community partner that would like to distribute flyers to our school community visit peachjar.com and register your organization.
